Our World rocked by Holiday visitors

The Overnight Visitors

This past weekend - a 'CAT-ASTROPHIE" turned our feline lives upside down.  OVERNIGHT VISITORS!!!

We were minding our own business, awaiting Carol our human's return when...THREE humans returned.  The two stranger-humans LOOKED like Carol but were NOT Carol. We were told they were something called "cousins", an invention made to fool cats.  We took off and were having none of it. Just look at us in those "leopard boxes" Carol brought to placate us:  do we LOOK happy?


Are we enjoying ourselves? NOT!
That night was even MORE confusing.  There was a lump on Carol's bed and when approaching I was horrified to find it was NOT Carol but a "cousin."  I went to look for Carol and she was asleep in her den but on a small cot and it was hard to position myself properly.  Plus Paprika got there first & got the best spot.


I walked out to the living room, seeking out the soft velour sofa but horrors, there was another "cousin" on it, wrapped in a blanket. this was more than any cat should have to put up with. All my secure places turned topsy turvey.

Then I tried ALL the rooms!

I ran back and forth between the den and living room, wailing softly and trying to tell them they were doing it wrong but no one would listen!  This was outrageous. My wails grew louder. Finally  Carol came out to whisper to me to be quiet and coaxed me 
Soothed to sleep...finally
into the  den where she petted me and where I uneasily settled on a "cat bed" Carol had brought for us. I have told her so many times I'm no longer into "cat beds" - did she forget?

The Next Morning

The next morning was better.  The cousins were finally upright and took up less space.  I got brave and ventured to the sofa finding a good place to display my charms.  It worked. One of the cousins took my photograph. 

At last I was in my element...in pictures! 

Departure of "the invaders"

Finally they left - but not a moment too soon.  The motto of this story is...if we put our paw down and stay, they will go! We had not really slept for hours and
conked out in the den.  Here we are, out cold.  See you in a few days!
